Dictate of Heliod Discussion

ellie-is on Kykar's Tokens & Cantrips

2 weeks ago

Okay, more changes... Relatively large ones this time. Keeping track of them here in the comments in case I want to take any of it back.

Removed more mana-intensive buffs (Force of Virtue, Dictate of Heliod, Soulblade Djinn, Strongarm Monk), some token generators (Goblinslide, Launch the Fleet, Battle Screech, Docent of Perfection  Flip, Finale of Glory) and and some other cards (Sphinx's Revelation, Firemind's Research, Fumigate) to make room for new ones.

Removed a land for Wayfarer's Bauble and Mind Stone.

Added Path to Exile, Swords to Plowshares and Muddle the Mixture.

Added Divine Visitation because it's really good on its own and makes Bishop of Wings better (I was wary of keeping Bishop of Wings with so little that synergized with it and without having tutors, at least now there's one more chance of drawing something that's good with it).

Added Purphoros, God of the Forge, Impact Tremors, Isochron Scepter, Dramatic Reversal, Retraction Helix and Spellbook because after giving it some consideration, infinite combos are fair-ish and fun if I'm not using tutors.

Added Fireball and Comet Storm to make use of infinite mana, since there's now a couple ways to do that.

I'll probably temporarily proxy some of the more expensive cards, but it's gonna be so long before I'm playing games in person again that I might even be able to buy all of them before that happens, lol.

TheVectornaut on Enlightened Equipments (Budget)

Your switch to modern did in fact get you more attention since I normally pass by vintage and legacy lists XD Kor Duelist seems like a natural inclusion that'd be better than Auriok Edgewright a lot of the time. I recently reviewed another deck making use of Duelist, Colossus Hammer, and Kor Outfitter, and Sigarda's Aid seems like a natural fit with that package so maybe more copies of Hammer could be viable. If you want to focus more on Kemba, I've had a lot of success with Konda's Banner as a sort of cheap Dictate of Heliod, at least in commander. Infiltration Lens and Sword of the Animist are some other equipment options that I think are underrated and can work on a budget.

DeinoStinkus - I didn't know full board wipes still triggered Atla Palani's second ability, a quick google search confirms such for me. I will definitely be looking to add in a board wipe or two, probably among those you suggested, but do you have any suggestions on what to remove? I'm thinking Collective Blessing, Dictate of Heliod, and Soul Foundry would all be candidates. The first two were just for buffs and the latter was a precon staple, but having to pay the full CMC makes it far less useful than I hoped. Thoughts?

MagicMarc on I hate cathars' crusade but …

If the card makes the deck unfun for you, just remove it. If what it provides is important to you, just replace it with something similar. When you produce tokens, your deck is going wide. Upping the power of the tokens is only helping you win a turn or two sooner than you would anyways.

Replace the crusade with Divine Visitation. You get basically the same thing without a lot of tracking. Or go with stuff like True Conviction, Dictate of Heliod, Intangible Virtue, Akroma's Memorial or Eldrazi Monument.

There are many creature-boosting enchantments and artifacts that would aid your wins without the hassles.

Or put the tracking on one card like Call for Unity. This would give you what you are getting from the crusade but all the bookkeeping is only on the one card and not all of your tokens. It's slower to grow but a lot less bookkeeping.

I really like Oketra's Monument in here. I would probably drop Fiery Emancipation (this may move too far away from your commander's activated ability being a primary strategy) and go with an anthem strategy overall as you acquire cards to slot in. Glorious Anthem, Gaea's Anthem, Dictate of Heliod, and, Beastmaster Ascension would all be solid in here. Other targets for removal for me would be Commander's Insignia and True Conviction. True Conviction can be great, but it seems a bit win more as opposed to just going wide and pumping through anthems. Beyond those, if you do lean into the anthem strategy, consider Mirari's Wake, Force of Virtue (can be a fun free play), Collective Blessing, and Spear of Heliod. You might even consider Intangible Virtue.

Have you considered Strionic Resonator to copy your commander's triggers?

Consider Blasphemous Act to replace Chain Reaction.

Consider Shared Animosity in place of Volatile Claws.

I see Heroic Intervention. I think I would also want Teferi's Protection. As a budget replacement, Eerie Interlude can still save a big junk of your board.

Card draw seems light. Just some various options: Runic Armasaur, Mind's Eye, The Immortal Sun (anthem as well), Shamanic Revelation or Collective Unconscious, and, if you want to play in further on tokens, Ulvenwald Mysteries.

I agree on getting the token doublers in here and I also agree they are pricey :). A more budget option would be Second Harvest.

For win-cons, if you decide to switch to a Timmy approach, Craterhoof Behemoth is an obvious choice, and Thunderfoot Baloth would also fit nicely. With all your anthems (assuming you go that route), Humility would certainly be fun. Doesn't see much play, but a janky win con requiring setup is pairing Touch of the Eternal with enchantment destruction on the last end step before your turn, plus you usually want some protection in there. Like I said, a lot of setup :).

multimedia on Isperia's Super Budget Flying Circus

Hey, I like the name, nice budget deck.

What are you using infinite mana of Peregrine + Deadeye for? It appears you have removed the mana sinks and other combo pieces. Brago, King Eternal's no mana cost repeatable flicking can do a lot more than Deadeye and Brago is a flying creature. Bident of Thassa for half the price would do a lot more than Deadeye with your flying creatures.

It seems that Deadeye is most expensive price card in your deck and it's not doing much. You could cut Deadeye to clear some price to improve the manabase with some better budget lands such as Command Tower, Prairie Stream, Port Town and Ash Barrens. Consider Bident of Thassa and Mask of Memory? These have excellent budget repeatable draw effects with attacking flying creatures. These cards could replace Failure and Deadeye Navigator.

Consider Sephara, Sky's Blade, Emeria Angel and Empyrean Eagle? All are good budget flying creatures. These could replace Devious Cover-Up, Sandstone Oracle and Dictate of Heliod.

Could cut Marble Diamond/Sky Diamond and add Azorius Signet/Mind Stone. These are better two drop mana rocks especially with Brago because they ETB untapped. Could cut Mask of Avacyn/Neurok Stealthsuit and add Swiftfoot Boots. The haste and hexproof of Boots especially haste is overall better than Mask/Stealthsuit.

Good luck with your deck.

I am trending away from global enchantments in favor of repeated life gain or creature generation in this batch of edits. I made sweeping edits in several categories:

  • Lands

Swapped out 8 Plains for Cryptic Caves, Desert of the True, Encroaching Wastes, Idyllic Grange, Karn's Bastion, Labyrinth of Skophos, Radiant Fountain and Secluded Steppe.

  • Defensive Auras

Upgraded Pious Interdiction to Recumbent Bliss (which would potentially provide many instances of life gain instead of 1) and dropped Bonds of Faith in favor of Gossamer Chains.

  • Offensive Auras

Upgraded Chosen by Heliod to Soaring Hope, Hope Against Hope to Spirit Mantle, Indomitable Will to Gift of Immortality and Ordeal of Heliod to Sunbond.

  • Sorceries

Upgraded from Blessed Reversal to Aetherflux Reservoir, Plea for Guidance to Silent Sentinel and added Pegasus Stampede for more ETB creature triggers.

  • Vanilla Creatures

Swapped out generic flyers (Armored Pegasus, Concordia Pegasus, Loyal Pegasus, Mistral Charger, Stormfront Pegasus, Wingsteed Rider) for ones with more ability or utility (Pegasus Charger, Plated Pegasus, Eiganjo Free-Riders).

  • Relevance

Bigger is not necessarily better so I opted to swap out Serra Avatar for Danitha Capashen, Paragon.

  • Defense and Removal

I swapped out Elspeth Conquers Death and Ghostly Prison in favor of Sacred Mesa and Monastery Mentor and Giant Killer for Frontline Medic.

  • Boost

I also replaced 3 boost effects (Commander's Insignia, Dictate of Heliod, Honor of the Pure) with 3 alternate win conditions (Test of Endurance, Felidar Sovereign, Archon of Redemption).

  • Life Gain

Replaced 3 less efficient or reliable life gain sources (Soldier of the Pantheon, Righteous Cause, Honden of Cleansing Fire) with better ones (Soul's Attendant, Auriok Champion, Pious Evangel / Wayward Disciple, Linden, the Steadfast Queen, Answered Prayers).
